The 'fietsflat' next to Amsterdam Central Station is a temporary bicycle parking since 2001. After 2004 it was supposed to be demolished, but this became 2009 and now probably 2023. There is time to make it into a monument before then!

"met de komst van de megaparkeergelegenheid, die in 2022 af moet zijn, verdwijnen op termijn ook de beroemde fietsflat en de intensief gebruikte rekken voor hotel Ibis." schrijft het Parool op 6 november 2020.
